Yes, according to Tibetan Tradition, Dalai Lama is incarnation of ChenRenZig (Avalokitesvara)-Buddha of Compasion.
But we don't know it is true or not, because we don't reach the realization. If we say no, but in reality it is true, we make a bad karma.
We must respect him as a holy man.
His Holiness is a title for great Buddhist Monks.
So we can use this title for all great monks.
May this can help. If I make mistake please correct me
: Thanks! That really helps me out. Now i know i wasn't dreaming ;).
: I have two questions now:
: Is the Dali Lama a Buddha incarnation? I read that he was the reincarnation of the Buddha of Compassion. True?
: And why do we call the Dali Lama 'His Holiness'?
: : Dear Buddhist Friends,
: : Yes you are right there are many Buddhas before our Teacher Shakyamuni (Gotama) Buddha, and also uncountable Buddhas after Him.
: : The Buddhas before Him are for example:
: : KANAKAMUNI
: : KRAKKUCHANDA
: : AMITABHA
: : VAIROCANA
: : RATNASHAMBAVA
: : SAILENDRARAJA
: : BHAISAJYAGURU
: : MERUPRADIPA
: : CANDRASURYAPRADIPA
: : SUMERUKALPA
: : MANIPANTHAKA
: : etc.
: : Next Buddha after Shakyamuni:
: : MAITREYA
: : We can also become Buddha, because every sentient beings posess Buddhahood.
: : Maybe this can help.
: : If I make mistake please correct me.
: : Best regards,
